Further to the previously reported pooling of the Montney rights held by Donnybrook and partners in section 28-60-22 W5M with those held jointly by Trilogy Energy and TAQA North in the adjacent section 33-60-22 W5M, the initial extended reach, horizontal joint well on the pooled lands was spud on March 4 and reached total depth on April 2, 2012.
The DEI Bigstone Hz 13-33-60-22 W5M was drilled from its surface location at 4-28-60-22 W5M to a total measured depth of 5,336 metres with a 2,590 metre horizontal length. Trilogy Energy will assume the role of Operator during the completion phase of operations. The well has been conditioned with a liner and packer assembly run in preparation for conducting a multi-stage (up to a 27 stage) fracture program.
Completion operations are scheduled to be underway as soon as practicable. Donnybrook holds an undivided 25% working interest in the pooled lands and participated as to a 25% working interest in the drilling of the DEI Bigstone Hz 13-33-60-22 W5M well.
